Sweet-toothed Queenslanders, rejoice. Australia's dessert museum is returning for a second round of sugary fun this winter. After doing the rounds of the country over the past year, Sugar Republic is heading to the Gold Coast for four sweet weeks,  complete with three huge zones, colourful installations and free desserts.

This time, the pop-up is taking over a trio of spaces at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, complete with a bubblegum pink ball pit, a giant giant birthday cake, a sweets-inspired neon installation, a confetti shower and a liquorice playroom (the sugary list goes on and on). There'll also be a swimming pool filled with giant sprinkles, as well as a human-sized gumball machine. Yes, it sounds like the kind of place that Willy Wonka might own.

Throughout the colourful exhibition, you'll find many edible treats, including free candy samples, free soft serve ice cream and free fairy floss. Just don't tell your dentist.

Worried the installation will be filled with littlies? It's also opening on Friday and Saturday nights for adults only — so you can jump in the pit without fear of crushing a small one.

Sugar Republic will pop up at Pacific Fair from Sunday, June 30, and run through until Sunday, June 28. Times vary daily, with the installation open every Thursday–Sunday, plus Mondays and Tuesdays during the school holidays.
